In this green-thumb friendly book, tenth-generation American gardener Felder Rushing aims on returning gardening to its leisurely roots. The "slow" in his one-man gardening movement doesn't mean simple, lazy or neglectful; in fact, it can actually entail more work, but over a long haul and performed as a labor of love, not a menial, overwhelming chore. Like the slow food movement (which inspired the book's title), this concept is designed to enhance the experience. Slow Gardening doesn't provide empty self-help nostrums for gardeners; its specific commonsense advice about planning and plant choices can help make backyard work the pleasurable activities they were once meant to be.
